This Week In Destiny - 07/05/2024

Jul 5, 2024 - Destiny 2 Community Team

This Week in Destiny, we are a day late because yesterday was a holiday for some of us. We hope everyone in the United States had a nice Fourth of July and that  reading a TWID on Friday feels a bit like using a Golden Gun on a Warlock or a Titan: it shouldn't be possible, but Still Hunt exists. So, let's look at our topics for today. 

  • Tune in for our Echoes: Act II livestream. 
  • Bungie Day is almost here! 
  • Iron Banner continues next week. 
  • Check out these cool wallpapers. 
  • We hear “echoes” of amazing community art. 
  • Our METORO manga collab is complete. 


Ready for Our Act II Livestream? 

Tune in for our next developer livestream on July 9 at 10:00 AM PT (check here for your local time), where we will preview the new content coming with Echoes: Act II. We'll have three members of our dev team ready to talk about how the story will unfold and what new activities and rewards are coming. 

Speaking of rewards, we'll also have Twitch Drops enabled so everyone who watches 15 minutes or more during the livestream will earn the Ooo Shiny emblem in the game. Yeah, that's its name! Just make sure you have your Twitch account linked on before the stream starts.  


Happy Bungie Day!

Next Sunday is a very special day for our studio. You guessed it: it's Bungie Day! This year, we are celebrating with a special Bungie Foundation PvP tournament and some amazing discounts for the Bungie Store. 

Introducing the Bungie Foundation Tournament 

Bungie Day is right around the corner, and the Bungie Foundation has some exciting news to share around this year's campaign, which we have dubbed Seventh Column Chaos. Between July 9  and July 28, some of the Foundation's biggest supporters will be competing for bragging rights and glory in a 16-team PvP tournament. But this won’t be your average sweat fest. Pre-determined match modifiers, loadout restrictions, and custom game types will ratchet up the fun and keep our teams on their toes. We may even call on our community to help us throw a last-minute curveball at the competitors.


Whether you're competing in the tournament, want to host your own fundraiser, or are looking to donate to support the Foundation's work to support children's well-being, inclusion, diversity,equity, and humanitarian work, every Guardian can make a real-world difference for those in need around the globe. Moments like Cooper's Make-A-Wish visit to the Bungie Studio a reality are only possible thanks to your donations.

We've got some exciting incentives to earn for both donors and fundraisers.

Let The Chaos Begin

We can't wait to kick off this chaotic tourney and see the Destiny community rally once again in the name of changing the world! Donations for the campaign will open on July 9, and official tournament matches will begin on July 10, with the semi-finals and finals broadcast live on the Bungie Foundation Twitch Channel on July 25.

We'll be sharing more details next week, including how you can sign up to donate. Follow Bungie Love to ensure that you don’t miss out on all the news coming your way.

Bungie Store Sales Begins on July 9 

If you are looking to get some new goodies, or maybe some old ones, you are in luck. The Bungie Store will celebrate Bungie Day with a whole week of discounts. 


New items like the Crota Plush or the Destiny Class Rings will be available, while other will have a great discount for the very first time, but the deeper discounts will be among existing Bungie merchandise and our Last Chance section, so keep an eye on those. We are also bringing back some retired Bungie Rewards;—you’ll still need to have the linked in-game achievements to purchase them, but this is your only chance to get them if you missed them the first time. 

Everything you buy at the Bungie Store from July 9 at 10 AM PT until the sale ends on July 16 at 10 AM PT will have a $7.77 flat-rate shipping* and will include the Guardian Glam Emblem for free with each purchase. And last but not least, starting on July 9 at 10 AM PT through July 10 at 10 AM PT, the Bungie Store will donate $7 to the Bungie Foundation on any item you buy.  

*The $7.77 flat-rate shipping deal is limited to Bungie Store orders shipped in the 48 contiguous US states, the EU, and the UK. 

Wanna See a Silly Video? 

Making games is hard, but we always find time to have fun and do silly stuff. How silly, you may ask? Well, check this out.

One More Week of Iron Banner 

We hope you've been having tons of fun in Iron Banner. Saladin is tough, but his training is priceless, especially now that he has implemented some Cabal war tactics into the event. This is a general reminder of what we announced last week, that Iron Banner will now be a two-week event with a different game mode each week. This first week is Control, and next week will be Tribute. It gives you more time to gild your Iron Lord title and get more Crimil's Dagger and Claws of the Wolf rolls.  

Chilling with the Traveler 

You asked for some Excision wallpapers, so we had to deliver.

Our METORO Manga Comes to an End 

Let's keep it going with this very art-focused TWID. You might’ve seen the first couple of panels of this cute webcomic in one of our May TWIDs. Japanese webcomic artist METORO has finished her three-month series, and we’re excited to share them all with you!  

From the eager anticipation for The Final Shape to drop to the first playthrough of the campaign and even the hectic rush of tackling the Salvation’s Edge raid, METORO has documented the ups and downs of her Destiny 2 journey with weekly drawings. They are also available on her Twitter/X in Japanese!

Let's Be Friends


We both love punching, we both wear big out-of-fashion shoulder pads, and we both can bench press a Sparrow without breaking a sweat. So, my companion in Light, why don't you put down those spiky Void shields before I make oatmeal out of your Ghost?

Tormenting Other Games


Oh, yeah, exactly what we needed, a Tormentor going on a rampage in another game. We suggest you use a bow or, uh, snowballs on the shoulders. 


That’s all for this week, friends. So, how is that Iron Banner farm going? We heard Crimil's Dagger is a worthy Igneous Hammer rival and that Claws of the Wolf is stealing the show. We are going back into the fight right now to complete some more Triumphs, renew our Iron Lord title, have some fun with our friends, and to get those sweet, sweet rolls. And to make you proud, Saladin, of course.  

D-don't give us that look, sir!
